# Differential logic

☞ This page belongs to resource collections on Logic and Inquiry.

**Differential logic** is the component of logic whose object is the successful description of variation — for example, the aspects of change, difference, distribution, and diversity — in universes of discourse that are subject to logical description. In formal logic, differential logic treats the principles that govern the use of a *differential logical calculus*, that is, a formal system with the expressive capacity to describe change and diversity in logical universes of discourse.

A simple example of a differential logical calculus is furnished by a differential propositional calculus. This augments ordinary propositional calculus in the same way that the differential calculus of Leibniz and Newton augments the analytic geometry of Descartes.
